Before importing media files into KeyFlow Pro, you can select the import option to either “Copy to library” or “Leave files in place” in the General tab in Preferences.
- Copy to library
: This option is for importing media from a different disk/volume or keeping a copy of all media files that have already been imported into KeyFlow Pro within the library location. With this option, the media assets will be always online.
- Leave files in place
: This option is for linking to files in their current location, without copying them into the same library. In this case, KeyFlow Pro creates reference files that simply point to the source files, so the media assets can be managed as-is while maintaining its current storage location.
- Store To: This option is a part of the “Leave files in place” option, and it is for setting source media locations for reference files. With this option, the media files will be copied to any location on a connected volume, and then indexed as external media.
